Lil Wayne’s new CD sells 964,000 units in 1st week

New York: It wasn’t quite ‘A Milli’ but it was awful close: Lil Wayne’s ‘Tha Carter IV’ sold 964,000 in its debut week for the second-best first-week sales of the year.

The figures were released by Nielsen SoundScan on Tuesday.

Only Lady Gaga sold more this year. Her ‘Born This Way’ hit No. 1 with 1.1 million sold thanks in part to a one-day offer from to buy the album for 99 cents.

Lil Wayne just barely missed his own sales record. ‘Tha Carter III’ sold just over 1 million when it was released in 2008.

Lil Wayne made ‘Tha Carter IV’ available for digital download immediately after an appearance on the MTV Video Music Awards and released a physical CD two days later.
